Forgotten warriors.. Philadelphia's Vaughn Hooks.

Who remembers Philadelphia light heavyweight Vaughn Hooks, a crafty boxer puncher who went 20 fights unbeaten with a NC against tough Frankie Swindell for the USBA title, a fight where Hooks was announced the winner only to fail a drugs test..  He would lose his unbeaten streak on points to Adolpho Washington in 1993 before losing his final bout that same year to Fabian Garcia on a retirement at the end of the 9th round..   Hooks was ranked as high as 11 by the IBF but never got close to a title shot..
